I think it's logical. They made Heritage Handwireds in 2007, current Handwireds came in 2010, now is time for a new line. I hope they keep it as it is with come cosmetic changes and little tweeks in current circuit. I hope they said "No" to digital reverb, op-amp effect loop etc.
I would like to have AC30 with original fawn tolex (not a fan of current one, it looks little cheap to me) with leather handles and gold grids
